Tulle skirts have always been a popular play time dress up costume for many little girls but more recently we are seeing them as skirts and dresses for every day wear thanks to tulle skirts becoming a trendy and fashionable outfit. Tutus are not just for ballet anymore! And for good reason, tutus are so much fun to wear and are just beautiful! I’ve seen girls of all ages (from infants to teenagers) sporting cute tutu skirts and dresses. The most popular type of tutu for little girls tends to be short, fluffy, and full worn with leggings or tights underneath. Older girls even choose to wear jeans under their trendy, hip tutus for going to concerts or clubs. During the holidays, many fashionable moms will have tutu dresses for their daughters to wear. Red or green Christmas tutu empire waist dresses are popular, as well as red, white, and blue Fourth of July tutu skirts. There seems to be a tutu skirt or dress appropriate for any occasion or holiday from play time to Sunday best dress.

A number of local boutiques have started to carry more varieties of tutus and I’ve seen this trendy tulle skirt even featured in fashion shows. Unfortunately the cost of purchasing these pretty tutus is cost prohibitive to many since they typically run $25-100 per tutu.

It’s with all this in mind that I have created MissTutu.com to share my tutu making fun with moms who have girls that want lots of fun tutus without spending a fortune. The fifteen no-sew tutu instructions offered are for a variety of tutu skirts and dresses and none of them require a sewing machine. Oh and did I mention the first lesson is free, so even if you just want to make one basic type of tutu skirt, you can get started right away with the basic lesson and a few simple supplies from a local craft store.
